She became much more than a star......
I am glad to know something of who she was......Elton John's song paid homage to both Marilyn and later Princess Diana. She is the gold standard of beauty in many men and women's minds she not only achieved stardom, but became a Superstar and yet come from such meager means. It helps to see herself through her eyes both Norma Jean and Marilyn.

Short but worth a read
I want to start out by saying that I love Marilyn Monroe! I'm so sad she's gone. I watched a documentary about her and I wanted to know more. I wanted to read this because it is from her own perspective and is not someone else just guessing about her life. I want to give this 5 stars because I love her but that wouldn't be fair. I read the entire thing in a few hours. I felt so much while reading this...mostly sad. I didn't want it to end ! But I really wanted more depth in the writing. More descriptions. More color. More detail. It needed an extra ooomph that wasn't there. The story cut off just after she married Joe DiMaggio which was a shame because there was so much more that could have been added to this story. Regardless, I enjoyed the read.
